Shahrez Rashid
Road Traffic Team
Miscellaneous Information

Job Title

Shahrez is a trainee solicitor for the Glasgow Road Traffic Team.

About Shahrez

Shahrez has always had an interest in litigation and in situations arising out of road traffic incidents, having focused his dissertation on the law surrounding death by dangerous driving offences in Scotland. 

Prior to commencing his traineeship at Thompsons, he gained work experience by taking part in Strathclyde University’s ‘mini-devilling’ program, which enabled him to shadow an advocate for a few months. He also worked part time as a legal secretary for a number of months, further developing his knowledge of civil litigation. 

As a keen motorcyclist, Shahrez understands the impact that road accidents can have on individuals, whether the effects be short or long term. He knows the difficulties many of those who have been involved in accidents through no fault of their own can face, and this allows him to understand the importance of his role. 

Throughout his time at university, Shahrez worked in various customer-facing roles, primarily in the hospitality sector. He enjoys helping the public and is a friendly person who is easy to engage with.

Expertise

Shahrez currently deals with a wide range of road traffic accidents in the Glasgow team. He regularly takes precognitions from clients and witnesses. He negotiates settlements, communicates with third-party insurers and prepares forms as per the Personal Injury Pre-Action Protocol and other necessary documentation.

He has also attended a number of pre-proof consultations alongside his more senior colleagues. These have been of great interest to him.
